Note: We had to replace the 'daylight fill flash' button for this camera and it was extraordinarily difficult to find an adhesive to attach it to the rubber switch underneath. It feels relatively secure but we can't guarantee this button will stay in place forever. In our opinion, it's not a feature most people would ever use but please bear this in mind.
The Yashica Impression Plus is a very tiny and lightweight 35mm compact camera with a nice fixed 28mm wide-angle lens.
The camera requires two normal AA batteries (not included).
Condition Notes We tested the camera with batteries and film installed (we did not develop the film) and all features are working correctly. The camera is has some wear on the body (see photos) and as mentioned above we had to replace the 'force flash' button.
Built-in Electronic Flash System: The flash automatically turns on when required. This assures proper exposure in different lighting situations. There’s even a Built-In Flash Guard to prevent your finger from accidentally covering the flash.
Fill Flash: This feature is extremely valuable when taking portrait photography and your subject is in a shadow. The “Fill Flash” adds brightness to your subject while helping remove unwanted shadows.
Built-in Lens Shade/Lens Cover: The Built-In Lens Shade helps prevent “glare” on your pictures, which can otherwise happen any time you are taking photos in bright light. When closed, the cover protects your lens from scratches or dirt.
Bright Frame Viewfinder: The Extra Large, Bright Viewfinder automatically changes according to the print format selected (Normal or Panoramic).
Adjustable Viewfinder (Diopter) This special feature allows you to adjust the viewfinder to your personal preference. This is particularly useful for those who wear glasses.
LCD Information Center: Convientely located on top of the camera is an easy-to-read, extra large LCD Information Center. It provides you with key information including Frame Number, Flash Status, Self Timer and Red Eye Reduction Mode.
Mid-Roll Rewind Switch: The Mid-Roll Switch allows you to rewind the film anywhere in the roll. This is especially useful if you want to have your film developed before you reach the end of the film roll.
Automatic (DX) Film Speed Setting: The correct film speed is automatically set to optimize picture quality. The end results are beautiful pictures using a wide variety of film (ISO 100-400).
Electronic Self Timer: With the touch of a button, you can get into your pictures with family and friends! The Impression Plus even has a built-in Tripod Socket for group photos or scenics.
Auto Battery Shut-Off: When the camera or flash are accidentally left on for approximately two minutes, the camera automatically shuts itself off. This extends the battery life and saves you money.
